Hemis Festival Special 

Hemis Festival is a two-day celebration, offering insight into the culture of the region. The main attraction of Hemis Festival is the masked dance performances by the Lamas around the central flagpole in the courtyard while the musicians play some traditional music. The beats of drums and trumpets and the sounds of cymbals and wind instruments commence the celebration of the festival with an early morning ceremony in which thousands of Buddhist followers and Ladakhi nomads take blessings from the portrait of Lord Padmasambhava. Hemis Festival has got prominent place in the international circuit of tourism and we also offer it as a special event. It’s a much awaited event during the summers for tourists.
